In celebration of the skill and variety of Kalamazoo-area craft beer, we are launching the Kalamazoo Beer Cup.
It is a series of showcase events where between six different breweries from the Kalamazoo area will be selected to share their take on a craft beer style.
Guests purchase tickets to the event and receive a flight of beer and access to an appetizer buffet. Attendees will not know the participating breweries or the beers provided. They will then score their favorite beers in the flight. The top-scoring brewery will receive the Kalamazoo Beer Cup, a trophy handmade by Kalamazoo blacksmith, Jon Reeves, of Combat Ready Art.
This Kalamazoo Beer Cup will highlight local hazy IPAs. This relatively new twist on the IPA received major attention in Michigan starting 2017 with M-43 from Old Nation Brewing Co.
It will be held from 6-8 p.m. Friday, April 12, 2019 at Old Burdick’s Bar & Grill inside the Radisson Plaza Hotel in downtown Kalamazoo.
Tickets are $29 and includes the style flight and appetizer buffet.Buy Now!
